As we wrap up this mini-series, we examine the enduring legacy of this nearly half-century-old event. Museum of Bethel Woods Director and Senior Curator Wade Lawrence takes a look at such iconic figures of the era as visual artist Peter Max and religious guru Sri Swami Satchidananda, The Beatles and the Plastic Ono Band, Billy Preston and James Taylor. Lawrence also touches on contemporary (and unexpected) bands that might have fit in — and the inheritors of Woodstock’s message. Click here for more videos and posts on the legacy of Woodstock.
